Shannade Clermont Opens Up About Fatal Night Her ‘Sugar Daddy’ Overdosed

Shannade and Shannon Clermont

*Shannade Clermont, 25, became a household name within millennial culture after she and twin sister Shannon appeared on Oxygen’s “Bad Girls Club” in 2015. But she reached infamy status when her “sugar daddy” died during a date and she robbed him blind the next day.

Clermont claims she had no idea her trick, James Alesi, 42, was overdosing on that fatal night, alleging she got “annoyed” and thought “he was playing,” so she left with his credit card and racked up $20,000 in debt buying plane tickets, designers clothes and paying rent.

As it turns out, Alesi overdosed on cocaine and fentanyl and Shannade said she didn’t know he died until after her wild spending spree with the dead man’s money. She was hit was a slew of charges for her shady shenanigans and pleaded guilty to wire fraud back in November.

Clermont was sentenced to in year in prison in April and will begin serving her time next month.

In the meantime, she is speaking out about that night in January 2017, when the 42-year-old real estate broker overdosed and died. He was supposedly on a “$400 prostitution date” with her at his Manhattan apartment, Page Six reports.

“He wasn’t asleep when I left—he was just drunk,” Shannade explained. “I have never been around people who have been on heavy drugs, so I didn’t really know. It was like, ‘Oh, he was a drunk mess.’ I was annoyed . . . [I thought] he was playing games. So I just left.”

She admits taking Alesi’s credit card and using it to pay her rent, purchase flights, and go on a shopping spree the day after he was found dead. 

“From the outside looking in, it looks like I knew he was dead and was like ‘haha’ . . . and that’s really sick,” she added.

Clermont also insists that Alesi was a very “innocent person” and was “known as a sugar daddy.”

Shannade will be heading to prison on June 4.
